eveloping a videogame platform is so expensive, one former Sony Computer Entertainment executive thinks a currently inconceivable partnership just might be inevitable: Microsoft and Sony could one day partner on an Xbox/PlayStation mega console.

In an interview with CVG, former SCE deputy president and SCEE president David Reeves admitted the future is wide open when it comes to videogames. But if companies continue to develop more and more advanced hardware, prohibitive costs could force Microsoft and Sony to join forces.

"When you're on the first-party side, you realize how really, really expensive it is to develop a platform," Reeves told CVG. "Whether it's PS3, or Xbox 360 or even Wii, they cost millions -- maybe not billions, but absolutely millions. You don't know when to put that stake in the ground of technology and move on. You know, say, 'That's enough.'"

"Eventually, it may just become so expensive to develop that Microsoft and Sony say, 'Okay, let's get together,'" he continued. "I'd say it's between 10 and 15 years away. That's how long I think it will take. I don't think it will be the next console cycle, but probably the next cycle after that, where you might have something platform-agnostic."

Reeves spent 15 years with Sony before becoming the COO of Capcom last year. He added that other big name gaming partnerships are also likely, such as Sony and Facebook or Microsoft and Google.
